True peaces arises in the here and now- no matter what is happening to you…

True peace is not something that you ‘get’ when you achieve the things that you ‘think’ you want, and when you ‘arrange’ your life the way you want it to be…

True peace arises from within when you allow your mind to find harmony with the present moment, the here and now, when you become totally present as the ‘experiencer’ instead of being trapped in the ‘experience’…

In reality it is only when you allow your mind to find harmony with the present moment that you can be truly in touch with who you really are…

If your mind is run by the false ego (the false sense of self) then you become trapped thinking compulsively in the illusion of past and future. You become lost constantly analysing, evaluating and judging yourself and others. Always predicting, worrying, and trying to control outside people, situations and events. You get caught in the egos cycle of defending, reacting, judging, and trying to enhance itself. Your happiness and the way you feel becomes dependent on other people and outside events- and that lets’ you down every single time…

In reality any time you feel unhappy, unsettled, unsatisfied, worried, or anything but in a state of intense joy, it is because your mind (you) is currently run by the false ego, the false sense of self…

To transcend this false ego that keeps you feeling unhappy and unsatisfied with yourself and life, you firstly have to become aware of it. You have to start to notice this false ego arising in you, notice the compulsive need to defend and inflate yourself, the constant need to over-think, analyse and evaluate yourself and others and the situations happening to you. Notice this false ego rushing to the surface, don’t let it drag you in, become alert, become present, and don’t give it any of your energy…

This is great, because as you start to become aware of it, you now have the opportunity to transcend it to a higher state of mind. When you are run the false ego, you don’t know any different, you are always looking for external excuses as to why you can’t be at peace right now. So as you start to become aware of it arising within you, you now have the opportunity to go beyond it…

And as you start to withdraw your power from this false ego you start to gradually transcend to higher and higher states of mind, and as a result you start to dwell increasingly more in harmony with who you really are…

A peace starts to arise from within you, a feeling of lightness, a feeling of effortlessness, a feeling of being much more at peace and at home inside yourself and the world. The way you feel is no longer dependent on the external world, your thoughts don’t grab you with such intensity; you simply remain as the awareness that is beyond thought…

Thought arises as and when it is needed, but you are no longer ‘attached’ to your thoughts. You start to dwell in the present moment and think and act from the here and now. You are no longer caught in the illusion of time. You start to live in the present moment and ‘use’ time, as opposed to being caught in the illusion of time, and never accessing your true power: the present moment…

So start to recognise this false ego, this false sense of self, in your daily life. Notice how much it holds you back and keeps you from finding your true inner peace. Now start to go beyond it, don’t give it any of your energy, just become intensely alert of the here and now…

Remember the only person who can hold you back is YOU!
